  • Being a role model manager
  • Getting the best from your team
  • Managing your time & your department
  • Manager as a coach
  • Professional presentation skills
  • Managing a business

Graduate testimony

Zuzana Girovska, one of this year’s Leadership Academy graduates, shared: “I am truly glad to say that the Academy had a great impact on my professional development. Fiona has given us plenty of useful tips and techniques, how to become a more versatile manager, role model, inspiring leader, professional mediator, everyday problem solver”.

Developing confident business leaders

Claire Huish, Colleague services manager at Bennett Hay said: “Each year, up to ten delegates are invited to take part in the programme in recognition of their management abilities, commitment to the Bennett Hay values and long-term potential within the company. As an Investors in People accredited organisation we’re dedicated to developing confident business leaders from within the company and the Leadership Academy ensures we equip our managers to thrive.”
